lol is this anti-competitive? sure. breaking any laws? certainly not. this is diffferent from the amd situation as intel is not offering the discount on the provision that the buyers not sell nvidia parts.
you can't fine a company for wanting to offload a product for free. (or for giving a discount for a bundle) to me this says that intel is about to come out with something better and needs to get rid of the crappy stuff first that they have stockpiled.
I mean this is no different than disney offering a 5 day park hopper for the price of a 3 day. (or sometimes it's even cheaper than a 3-day if you watch for the deal). thats a discount for staying 2 more days. I'd imagine many companies will employ similar tactics during these hard economic times. see intel like disney knows that one product is already popular and will sell well on it's own (3 day hopper is the #1 bought for the disneyland/california adventure parks) so they offer discounts to puch a weaker product (5-day hopper) and increase it's sales to get more cutomer loyalty and a higher chance at return business.
it's called surviving tough economy 101.
